Drink water: I am assuming that these symptoms only come after a few drinks and not in your day to day life. You just might be very dehydrated causing low blood pressure which is likely due to combination of alcohol use and dancing/physical exercise. Keep a diary to see if there are certain alcohols or drinks that tend to cause them more than other? . Seek further help if symptoms persist. ...Read more

I doubt this has anything to do with aspergers but may be related to anxiety. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg1ngp1ngds. ...Read more

Now that I am older and ride roller coasters with my kids I feel  nauseous and have veritgo. Why does this happen when I used to do it fine?

Roller Coasters: Are unnatural...Let me be upfront here...I do not like them. They are dangerous. When you were younger they were not as fast or steep or jerky. Roller coasters can precipitate stroke in some people. As we age (yuck) our necks and vessels are more prone to injury from all that jerking and the force of the coaster is making you nauseated, etc. ...Read more
